Fear and Fashion in the Cold War

Jane Pavitt

V&A Publishing, Londen, 2008


Set in the context of art, film, science and design, Pavitt explores how the image of the body was shaped by Cold War concerns atomic anxieties, the space race, technological developments and the first forays into hyper-reality. With a stunning selection of images alongside military, political and scientific research, the book shows how counter-cultural theories and experiences in the later 1960s shaped an alternative view of the Cold War Body.
